In the January 2013 issue of Popular Photography they have named the Canon 5d Mark lll the Camera of the Year for 2012. The three contenders were the 5d Mark lll, Nikon D800, and Sony Alpha 99. So the question is does Canon need to boost megapixels significantly upwards or is the 20mp to 24mp range for full frame sufficient? The article is Modern Maturity, pg 58 Popular Photography-January 2013. I couldn't find it at popphoto.com web site for a link. This is an open ended question, I have my thoughts but I am interested to see how the coin falls on this issue in sight of this shocking revelation. So let the debate continue.
